Reviews of interest

  • Hipsters in Paris (2013) “It really is one of those dream Paris addresses that one (naïvely) expects to find on every street corner, with a goal to preserve time-honoured baking traditions and churn out exceptional product.”
  • Food Intelligence (2011) A video from Bruno Verjus profiling Vasseur’s products & philosophy.
  • Gilles Pudlowski (2011) “…il y aussi le pain au blé, celui au seigle ou aux châtaignes, issus de levain. Plus les jolies viennoiseries: pain au raisin, chausson aux pommes fraîches, palmier croustillant ou encore crumbles et – tartelettes aux fruits. Bref, une belle demeure avec son artisan hors norme…”
  • Barbra Austin (2010) “Formed by hand and given a slow rise, these are loaves with character…”
  • Croque-Camille (2010) “Yes, I’ve already written about Du Pain et des Idées, but that was before I became a regular…It is safe to say that I have by now sampled all their products…”
  • Meg Zimbeck for Budget Travel (2009) “Vasseur’s wildly popular pain des amis (friendship bread) makes me want to move to the neighborhood. Light but chewy, with a nutty fragrance and deliciously charred bottom—it’s one of the best I’ve ever tried.”
  • David Lebovitz (2008) “One of my absolute favorite bakeries in Paris…”
  • Clotilde Dusoulier (2008) Recommended in Clotilde’s Edible Adventures in Paris.
